What a pathetic list to describe the life of Dan Fogelberg. While his depth and talent make it hard to find words, I am sure you could have done better than this sketchy, unimportant, anti-highlight list of information that gives no insight to the man or his music....let alone his heart and soul. Shame on you Geoff.

YOU'RE AN IDIOT. Dan and his music are timeless and you should stick to writing about something that you are familiar with.

While I love Dan Fogelberg's more popular songs--those do not represent the depth of talent this one man had!! Its mostly his other songs that endear him to me and have made him my most fav artist!! Anyone who judges his talent merely by the hits, is missing a tremendously huge gap of talent that lay below the surface. Dan did every genre of music from folk rock to country to blues to soft jazz--and did them all so well!! His songwriting, musicianship and his voice all came together to make a wonderful bounty of timeless works of art. It irks me when people label him in just one way-surely they never really listened--I for sure and glad I did!!!

Who hasn't heard at least one of his songs on the radio?
There are new young writers on the rise & they know nothing of the great timeless
music.
omg, one listen to Longer or Leader of the Band or Heart Hotels and you are totally captivated.
one listen to his incredible lyrics to
Same Old Lang Syne and one is stricken.
Dan's music is timeless.

I never once heard anyone refer to him as a Weasel. I did not know him but know people who did. Those people all said he was a good person along with being a top notch talent.

All I know is that was his nickname in the clan, his band during highschool which my dad played bass. Even then he had talent, no doubt.. But I know during that time he wasn't always on best of terms with other members maybe it was the frontman mentality.

we miss him here at the Hole-In-The-Wall gay bathouse.
That is why we are going to have a Weasel day to honor our old friend.
This friday only if you mention your are a fan of Weasel you can get half off the entrance price.
Come in and enjoy gay sex the way the Weasel liked it.
Hard fast and in the rump.
That is the way men take it here at Hole-In-The-Wall.
Make sure you mention Lonny at the door for your personal tour of the place.
And mention Weasel for your discount.
Sparky sorry no girls allowed. Get your kicks elsewhere.

I just never heard that about him but it sounds like you have much more knowledge about this than I do. It is surprising in a way but in other ways maybe not. I still enjoy listening to his music.

I don't know how much written is true about this talented man.
I know 56 is a young age at which to die. and this is a time for remembrance of him as he passed in December.
It is confirmed that Dan was married 3 times, don't know where he fit in time for those off activites mentioned by others.
It does strike me as odd, being married 3 times and no children from any of the marriages which were short termed.
It is also kind of peculiar that during his interviews he never denied being gay or not. Would it have hurt him just to come out and say yes or no.
Ricky Martin never denied being gay, but time proved he was, even if he had a gf to cover for him. Lots of rumours surfaced before Ricky's confession. The published photographs of Ricky and his bf left little doubt long before Ricky came out.
I still enjoy listening to Dan's music, it's timeless.

just curious though if those who state that Dan was gay and visted gay bathhouses can provide proof.
Documents or photographs with other men that would leave no doubt in the mind. talk is cheap

There are two major websites for you to look at if you want to know everything about him. And a Facebook page also. And they are very easy to find. Two of the sites his widow keeps up. As for children, there are lots of people that didn't have children. Music was Dan's child. There are a lot of people like that. Their work is their life. As for being married, his first wife he was with for years before they married. Marriage lasted 3 years. His second wife he was with her for a few years before marriage, but married to her for almost 10 years. and his last wife, he was with her for 5 years and they married and together 11 years until his death in 2007. As far as his nickname goes, never heard it mentioned ever. Not from any of the Clan members or anyone else. And no one ever asked him in any interviews of his sexual preference. There was never any reason for it. No he wasn't gay, He was so busy all throughout his life he didn't have time to visit any gay club. How totally disgusting that someone would post something like that. Yeah that's true that Talk is Cheap.
